I adore Deathcab for Cutie. Their music is beautiful and their lyrics heartbreaking, exploring such topics as losing a loved one, inevitable doom, crazy stalkers, and Donald Trump (yes, I’m serious. It’s called “Million Dollar Loan” and you should check it out). This song is about trying to be special, to be unique, to be something of value in a world where anything new can be imitated to worthlessness. The animation is poignant in its simplicity. Enjoy!
